So excited to arrive home yesterday and find a humongous box that contained a goose down comforter and a double burner griddle! I was not expecting anyone to fork over the cash for the comforter because those things are pricey! But it made me so happy. Just wanted to share. What was your first registry gift? Were you expecting it? Did you put things on the registry that you weren’t actually expecting anyone to purchase?

Woohoo! Isn’t that the best? 🙂
Our first gift was a toaster/convection oven that came the week before last. Fiance was very confused by the fact people sent gifts now and directly to our house 🙂
There were a few things I didn’t expect anyone to buy – a new kitchenaid to replace my 12+ year beat-to-hell workhorse one and a little vacuum/dustbuster type thing. Both were bought! not sure when I’ll get them, but yay!

Oh yayy!! congratulations! 🙂
We got our first registry gift at our engagement party – they were the Mikasa Italian Countryside Pasta bowls. We use them all the time 🙂
I can’t wait to get more! It’s like Christmas!

The first thing we got were place settings from our fine china set. Apparently people really wanted to get us all the fine china since its already all bought with still almost two months to go.

First thing we got was a knife set. Then a food processor (so excited about that one). Then 6 out of 8 plate sets and a handheld mixer.

I went online and bought us a platter off our registry… I just wanted to see what it would feel like to have something arrive at our house! I know that is cheating…

My parents bought us a Keurig! 🙂 I can’t wait to get my hands on it but my shower isn’t until August.

One of my FI’s uncles got us a wine decanter, which was probably the last thing we put on there. He’s from NJ (we’re in TN) so half of our guests are Out of Town and will probably be sending things.
@His Barista – I love getting mail, too!
Fiance watches the registry like a hawk, it’s hilarious! He was so funny when I told him we got something and he had missed it coming off the registry, lol. It was super unexpected and really, REALLY exciting to see the Macy’s box at the door!

@Gemstone: Ooh! Love that. I realized that my mother left off Crate and Barrel from my shower invites. Ummmmm we registered there because you told us we *needed* dishes and now I love everything on there and don’t know how many people will buy, even though it’s on our wedsite. Bummer!
